Owner description: It's an odd structure, a stone octagon in "German art nouveau" style.

Beautiful old building with one of the most spectacular views in the world. Admired as a child, and haven't seen anything better in travels in Europe, Asia, North Africa.

The view from the top is amazing. From Multnomah falls it is around 4 miles. Make sure you check the rain prediction before going here :) The observer tower access was not available when I was there :(

Vista House was built between 1916-1918 by Multnomah County as a comfort station and scenic wayside for those traveling on the Historic Columbia River Highway, which had been completed in 1913. It is also a memorial to Oregon pioneers.

The graceful octagonal stone structure towers 733 feet above the Columbia River, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in the National Geographic Society’s 2001 “Save America’s Treasures” book.

The restoration to the building is gorgeous. If you're afraid of heights then don't go upstairs and look out over the edge to see the most wonderful views of the Columbia River. You won't want to miss these pictures to take home with you!
